I have ordered a Dell XPS 15 9550 notebook some weeks back, together with it I have also purchased a TB15 dock to plug my Ethernet cable, external screen, mouse and keyboard.
For some reason although Dell sold me and charged for the dock and was supposed to ship it together with my notebook, the Dock was never shipped. When I contacted my sales contact in Germany she told me I will get a refund because the dock has been recalled.
I have also pinged @DellCares over twitter and they have confirmed the same.
Update with further comments from @DellCares:
The Dell TB15 is a USB Type-C connector Thunderbolt Dock which apparently has been having several issues according to this Reddit.
It is not completely clear at this stage if the recall is related only to the “unsold” items in stock or also to the ones the customers already purchased. The recall page at Dell doesn’t mention the TB15 recall, but also seems to have been updated in 2006 the last time :(.

I consider myself a relatively new Apple Mac OS X user. I am a technology freak, I love everything around it and I am the point of reference of most of my family and friends when it comes to computers and tech stuff. I write about technology, love to do research and work in IT Service Management in a big company.
At work, I use a Windows 7 computer and at home I use a Retina MacBook Pro Late 2013 15″ notebook. I had to have the experience that everybody was talking about: “Mac is great”, “I love my Mac”, “Everything is so stable”. So when I decided to buy it, I went for the best model available. The extra graphics card, the 16 GB of RAM, the 512 SSD, everything, spending a wooping almost USD 3.000. It was a lot of money and it still is.
Since then, I am trying to feel happy with my investment and with the new experience of “The Mac” and to be honest I still can’t find any joy besides looking at the thing.
I guess working at the office with a Windows computer and arriving home trying to use the Mac, doesn’t help either. I did install BootCamp and Parallels with a virtual machine running Windows, but I forced myself to use OS X since around November 2013 until today (March 2016) for most of the things I do. (more…)
Back in December I was writing a post about how 2015. if done properly, could be the year of the return of Microsoft. With yesterday’s Microsoft hardware event and the success of Windows 10 being installed in more than 110 million computers in less than 3 months of being released, we can confirm it certainly is.
The Redmond giant was able to turn around a negative number of the Surface family with the just wrong Windows RT approach, into good profit by changing the strategy a few generations back. The new Surface lineup with Windows 10 as the driving operating system for all their end user devices, this can only get better.
I purchased this SKROSS World Adapter MUV USB that allows you to charge 2 USB devices and connect something else like your laptop at the same time. Honestly, I thought I was purchasing something of premium quality. Unfortunately I didn’t, the noise this things makes just by plugging it to the wall it’s incredibly annoying. (more…)
